Drone Competition

Get your drone on!

The Pitsco Idea Shop, a partnership between Pitsco Education and Pittsburg State University, is holding its first-ever drone competition! This competition is for middle school, high school, and university students who enjoy solving challenges with creativity, critical thinking, and engineering skills.

How does it work? 
Teams of 2-3 students work together to create a drone mission, build the field elements that represent their mission, and navigate their done through the course. Teams are judged on a rubric and compete for a spot in the championships in late April.

Who can participate? 
Students in grades 6-12 and university students are eligible to participate.

What's required? 

Registration is free, and drones are provided (on loan). Teams will receive supplies to use in designing and building their field elements, and they'll use the Pitsco Idea Shop to build their elements and practice with their drones.

Registration is open March 2 – March 17, and competition will begin in April.
